I installed Matlab (almost) according to the guide https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MATLAB. I chose the installation folder ~/opt/MATLAB instead of their chosen /usr/local/MATLAB. I also found that I did not mark the "Create symbolic links to Matlab scripts in /usr/local/bin".
When I go through their short section that describes how to add Matlab to the launcher, I find that it does not work (no error message). The application is just not appearing in the "applications" window.
Since I am new to Linux, I wanted to ask whether it has something to do with the fact that I installed it somewhere else than them?
Using Ubuntu 18.04.
All help appreciated.
